cuomo from erik. james says in connecticut there are two major problems, the deficit and more taxes. both problems are created by one party rule. what are the big issues in your state? join that conversation on facebook by looking for c-span. let us take a look at the balance of power in state. we can see here who controls the governors' seats. 30 republicans states in red, 19 democratic, and one independent in rhode island. but as your what ray has to say on our democrats line. caller: good morning. i wanted to say that i believe here in the state of texas -- our standard of living is what keeps is going. nobody can live on $7.25 hour. our standard of living is so below the economy it should be at $12 per hour. everything is so expensive right now. it should be, at the very least, $12 per hour. host: you are calling to raise the minimum wage? caller: yes, ma'am. if everybody makes at least $12 an hour, this country would boom so fast. here in the state of texas -- i think it is everywhere. the corruption of the governor and the mayor. big corporate donors, big business owners. they
. particularly we passed by a powerful bipartisan vote of 89-8, a bill that avoided tax increases for 99% of americans and extended emergency unemployment benefits for another year and protected us from the fiscal cliff. when it comes to legislating, the senate actually has a pretty strong bipartisan record. how did those senate bills do on the house side? well, the house couldn't pass its own highway bill. congress has been doing highway bills since the eisenhower years. this isn't rocket science. the house couldn't do one. the best the house of representatives could do was to pass a short-term extension that allowed some of their members to get to conference on the senate bill. but they took no bill into conference because they couldn't pass one. even then they delayed the conference negotiations and they cost the united states of america an entire summer construction season for highway construction, putting thousands of jobs in jeopardy before they finally came around and passed an amended version of the senate bipartisan highway bill. so their record on the highway bill is nothing to
lower. what you are seeing is a lot of investors wanting to take a profit before the capital gains taxes kicked in. you started seeing the stock sell off last september. as for today, they are choosing to get out and they are seating up. phones and tablets and the heat is coming heavier these days. >> it's about innovation here since steve jobs passed. tim cook took over and what does it say about tim cook's tenure as ceo? >> does he get the blame? sure. the buck stops with him. he's the same guy who oversaw the debut of the iphone 4s. he's the guy who stared the stock price. when kwook took over, the price doubled in the first year and his charge peaked in september. shares have tumble and there two camps and schools of thought. wall street and analysts say that they don't have the confidence that he can deliver, but this is an incredibly healthy company with $137 billion tucked away and the next four quarters show what this showed last night, maybe they will ree valuate. for now, cook should stay. >> we are just minutes away. president obama expected as we are looking live at the white
: president obama, sworn in yesterday, promising to change the tax code, immigration laws, and act on climate change. good morning, everyone. we will spend the first part of this morning's "washington journal" on yesterday's inaugural address. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for independents, 202-585-3882. also, send us a tweet, twitter.com/c-spanwj. post your comments on facebook, or you can e-mail us. journal@c-span.org. let me begin this morning, this is "the wall street journal," had line. "obama vows aggressive agenda." "he is looking beyond the fiscal battle set to dominate the coming weeks." and then a side story, an analysis. "the president is set to fight over a new to do list." "the inauguration was not only grayer, he sounded less like a man ready for lofty flights and more ready for ground battles." and then here is "the washington post," this morning. there had lyme, "we must act." -- there had line, "we must act -- their headline, "we must act." "the new york times," this morning, "a limitless vision." "speech gives quiet goals center stage." "our jou
? >> reporter: democrats have been setting very strong signals they want more tax increases or at least revenue enhancements through closing loopholes and deductions. majority leader cantor responded to that yesterday. listen up. >> well, you know i fundamentally disagree. i don't think most americans would say to give more money to washington to have washington spend their money is a way to help anybody. >> reporter: also yesterday, the president strongly defended social security, medicare and medicaid and with anp a parent jab at his defeated opponent mitt romney said those entitlement do not make us a nation of takers. republicans have long-held those entitlements are on the road to insolvency unless they are fundamentally restructured. martha. martha: doug, thank you. doug mckelway. bill: house republicans say they hope the move will shift the focus to spending and push the senate into passing a budget. remember it has been four years since the senate passed a budget in washington. >> i think it is about time the senate did its legal responsibility of passing a budget. we passed one each of
. instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all americans, a debt tax, that washington doesn't want to talk about. increasing america's debt weakens domestically and internationally. leadership means that the buck stops here. instead, washington is shifting the burden on bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. america has a debt problem. and a failure of leadership. americans deserve better. all of those words were taken from then senator obama's statement before he voted against raising the debt ceiling in 2006. truer words cannot have been spoken today. the debt burden the president was concerned about a few years ago is still a very real threat today. congress should pass a responsible budget so we have a road map to get to our serious debt burden. no budget, no pay. >> i'm not sure i need this stool, but i'm a freshman. i'm new. i was sworn in just three weeks ago today and as a new member of the 113th congress, i know how they do things in washington, d.c.,. i know how they do things in missouri's 2nd congressional district. i'm a mother of th
it, those on the left said we need to raise taxes. they got partially what they wanted when the tax went up on individuals. they got part of what they wanted. the other part is really, truly spending reduction. i know the present not -- the president does not agree. but we do. when those agencies talked about our underpining as it relates to our overall health of our economy, he talked about congress's in the bill -- inability to do two things. raise revenue. the other was to get our spending under control. while this does not do it and i agree this body, and it is not just in recent history, but over the years, this body has kicked the can down the road. we are adding trillions of dollars of debt as we move lower. while this is a small movement, and it does not sound like much to get some to actually do it, and i know they are supposed to do a budget by law, but it was in the lot and there was no slap if you did not get it done. you are on will people and you do what the law requires. this is just saying to them, do your job. do your job. i do not know what the constitutional impli
a healthy state funded by 80%, but the plus side if they have an unlimited ability to raise taxes. it was really written in there. they can go ahead and tax away to solve the problem. has that worked for california? a limited ability to solve this pension problem. what do you think? >> in california we are very excited to not be the worst anymore. running around the state capital building we are 49. that is at least good news for us. raising taxes now that the marginal tax rate is topping up 13.3% for the richest californians there: accountants in droves finding ways to move their money and we are looking at unfunded pension liability maybe not as bad off, but $181 billion? melissa: i love you, jonathan, but he was so entertaining. going on to say they believe legislative consensus will be difficult to achieve given the poor track record of the past two years. in other words, may have the ability to tax until kingdom come but i don't think they will reform the pension, which they raised taxes in the past and they didn't spend the money to fix the problem. they just spend it. jona
. >> let me reiterate what i think is pretty clear to everyone. new year's eve, the taxes went up for everybody in the night. senate senate republicans in the majority of the house voted to make 99% of the bush tax cuts permanent, thereby preventing another event like new year's eve. that came about because the law sunsetted. i would eventually say there is not a single republican vote in the house or senate to provide more revenue and the reason for that is we all know that revenue is not the problem. $200,000, or $250,000 per couple, this is not a revenue problem, this is a spending problem. so yes, the revenue issue is behind us. and whatever new taxes the president is going to get, he got by operation of law on new year's eve and we now going to focus on the real problem is not that we taxed too little, but that we spend too much. and yes, that is where we are. >> [inaudible question] >> i have a couple thoughts about the debt ceiling in general. it's been used 20 times since the 1950s for major spending reform. you will remember the clinton republican congress deficit reducti
be making a bigger case about taxes, spending, shoot for the mountains and not get dragged down on what he says is clearly democrats and the president's turf. >> we have to focus, steve, i believe republicans -- i've said it time and time again -- on taxes. on cutting spending. on saving entitlements. on saving america from this crushing national debt. it grew $6 trillion under barack obama over the past term. and try to avoid some of these other issues. but i hear bobby jindal's new federalism on crack talking about cutting federal employees by three-quarters, et cetera, et cetera. that ain't going to happen. with the changing demographics and where america is and where it's going over the next 20 every 30 years. >> that's the issue. if you separate it, i think the first part not being the stupid party anymore is sort of a no-brainer. why would you go around insulting important interest groups. >> women. >> yeah, the 47%, all that stuff. but then you get to his policy proposals, and i don't think he's in the mainstream of this country when you talk about 25% of the government buildings, c

over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him. he pulled the proposal because conservative republicans said the bill was loaded with pork with projects not related to the storm and they should've gone through the normal appropriations process. a

be sure to see a litany of anti-coal regulations, tax hikes, anti-second amendment bills, forced unionization bills and crazy new deficit spending. it's the same old mitch mcconnell, same operation. and he will block president obama's agenda. it's basically selling out the efforts of the progressives in this country, in my opinion. let's turn to senator bernie sanders of vermont, who is the only member of the democratic caucus to vote against the so-called filibuster reform. senator, good to have you with us tonight. i'd like you to respond to that fundraising letter of mitch mcconnell. i mean, are things going to change? are we going to see the same old mitch? >> look, at the end of the day, what that legislation did is made it easier for some cabinet appointees to take their jobs. that's important. it's going to speed up the process in the senate. that's important. but at the end of the day, ed, this country faces enormous economic crises. we've got to deal with global warming. we've got to deal with education. we have to deal with deficit reduction. we are not going to be able
by that measure in the 1990s in russia. one clue is the subsidies that you could get for the import of tax-free tobacco and alcohol to benefit good causes such as the red cross. this was profitable and, therefore, of interest. it's even a science fiction story. because what we're dealing here really when you come right down to it is the meeting of two alien civilizations after 70 years of the soviet period. the oil industry in particular grew up in almost complete isolation from the west, and this is virtually a unique case. we have other places where oil industries have grown up, where oil industries are run by national oil companies, but in almost every case -- in fact in every case -- these industries were first founded by foreigners and then were taken over. not so in the case of russia where from the 1920s on at any rate or for all practical purposes the oil industry was home grown and developed its own culture, its own civilization even as the soviet union did with its own language and its own culture. i sometimes like to tell my classes that the story of russia in the 20th century i
the california's budget picture is ing a lot rosier. >>> governor brown's prop 30 tax measure is in effect in california's budget picture is looking a lot rosier. >> it does, but there's some question now about how the governor got it top billing on the ballot. here's melissa griffin. an appeals court has ruled on a sneaky move by the governor. >> exactly. there's a reason why his measure was the top of the ticket. and molly monger's competing tax measure was far down on the ticket. and they revealed it was a abuse of power. generally the conventional wisdom is things at the top of the ballot have a better chance of passings, the further down they get on the ballot, they are more likely to vote no or not vote. how do we decide what order things go on the ballot. traditionally it's been determined by who gets their signatures in first. in last year's election, the pta backed income tax for education got their signatures in first so they should have been at the top of the ballot. jerry brown was in a pickle. he needed his prop 30 on the ballot and needed

it really explodes. i want them to be more aggressive on tax reform. i want them to cut defense spending much more. i hope the sequestration goes through. >> right. >> i want those defense cuts. and after we do those defense cuts, we need more defense cuts. we need to stop occupying countries for a decade at a time. we've got to stop spending $2 billion a week. i am mr. cut. call me mr. cut. i am more conservative than most republicans on the hill. that said, what gave me comfort yesterday was, i talked to party leaders, and i talked to the rank and file on both sides. they seemed to understand that they've walked into traps time and time again. and they're ready to start playing smart. that's good. >> that's very good. and i think they've had, you know, to your point, joe "cut man" scarborough, they understand that you can have the arguments all day long on cutting and spending, but if you consistently fall into the president's traps on the social issues and on a bunch of other things out there is that distract from the main argument you want to make about the growth and health of the e

majority support on a cloture vote: the dream act, bring jobs home act, small business jobs and tax relief act, paying fair share act of 2012, repeal big oil tax subsidies act, teachers and first responders back-to-work act, american jobs act of 2011, public safety employer-employee cooperation act, paycheck fairness act, creating american jobs and ending offshoring act. now, again -- again, it's not that the bill was filibustered. the right to even debate these bills and vote on them was filibustered. one thing, he go on the bill and they filibuster. no, we couldn't even debate it. even though a majority of senators voted for cloture. not 60 but a majority. so the majority thwarted from even bringing these up and debating them and even letting people offer amendments. now, it used to come that if a senator opposed a bill, he or she would engage in a spirited debate, try to change people's minds, attempt to persuade the public, offer amendments, vote "no," and then try to hold members who voted "yes" accountable at the ballot box. isn't that what it's about? in contrast, today, to quote fo
